The contradictions of Donald Trump

The American president omnipresence in the media and in the social networks has an inconvenient which he seems not to have completely controlled: to attract attention, it is necessary to avoid, as possible, to repeat himself and to announce every time something new. That leads him to take decisions and to pass judgments which are frequently carrying contradictions. The most worrying point is that he doesn’t seem conscious of that when even he falls into a denial. It is this instability of the economic policy and of the American diplomacy which constitutes a threat for financial markets as for ...

Ecology and the fuel crisis in France

The deep discontent provoked by past and coming increases of fuels taxation is a further sign of the political leaders incapacity to establish a right diagnostic about the situations they propose to correct, to elaborate the appropriated policies and to make them accepted by their citizens. The increase of the taxes levied on fuels and the convergence at the top between gasoline and diesel has, as an objective, to favor “energy transition”. But this policy, prompted by laudable intentions, is based on a confusion which has been at the origin of many errors.

Climate warming is generated by the accumulation ...

The disappointing figures of the French economy

The publication of the unemployment figures for the 3rd quarter constitutes a new disappointment. Jobseekers number has reached 3.72 million, a 0.5% increase compared to the previous quarter. However, a 1% fall is noticed on one year but these small variations must not divert attention from the main point. Unemployment stays at a very high level in France with a 9% rate for these who are registered at “Pôle Emploi” as having no activity at all. The rate is much higher if are added all the part-time employees who would wish to find full-time jobs. Even ...

Chinese economy holds out

The publication of the first estimation of the 3rd quarter Chinese growth rate (6.5%) confirms that the financial markets worries as these of commentators were excessive. Of course, the published numbers are slightly inferior to expectations (6.6%) but this gap is trivial and the referred disappointment is absurd. Regarding the three first 2018 quarters, China has reached a 6.7% rhythm, above the government objectives and, anyway, an impressive one, if we take into account the size of the Chinese economy and if we compare it to other major economies. The Middle empire stays as one of the ...

Le nouvel Etat-stratège

LE NOUVEL ETAT STRATEGELe dernier livre d'Alain Boublil, le nouvel Etat-statège (Editions de l'Archipel) est paru le 5 février 2014.

Le livre apporte les réponses de son auteur  à la question qui est, en France, au centre de tous les débats politiques: "Que peut-on attendre de l'Etat aujourd'hui ? " Et il formule plusieurs suggestions sur l'exercice du pouvoir tirées de son expérience passée auprès de François Mitterrand. Observateur de l'économie mondiale comme conseil des nombreuses grandes entreprises qui ont fait appel à lui, il trace un portrait de la France d'aujourd'hui bien moins pessimiste que ce que l'on entend parfois, à condition que chacun fasse preuve de lucidité sur ses propres comportements. 

Les exigences ont certes été exacerbées par la crise. Mais y faire face est de plus en plus difficile car l'écart s'est creusé entre les attentes de chacun et la réduction des marges de manoeuvres publiques du fait des règles internationales, de l'endettement et des contraintes environnementales.

En dix chapitres, Alain Boublil dresse un bilan sans complaisances, prend la mesure des possibilités et des limites de l'Etat et il ouvre des voies nouvelles pour l'action publique. Il évoque le sauvetage de l'euro, le fardeau de la dette et le ras-le-bol fiscal, l'Etat-patron de Colbert à Jean-Marie Messier, le retour du complexe vis-à-vis de l'Allemagne et les nouveaux outils de l'Etat-stratège dans la mondialisation face aux défis industriels, aux enjeux de la transition énergétique, à la "dictature du CO2" et à la révolution du gaz de schiste. Et il met en garde contre les dérives de l'Etat-spectacle, qui gènent l'efficacité de l'action publique et les facilités de l'Etat-guichet qui débouchent sur le clientélisme.
